Wrinkle relaxing injections with Botulinum Toxin are the most commonly requested cosmetic procedure in both Men and women both around the world and here at Avanti Aesthetics.

They provide a safe, quick and reliable solution for fine lines and wrinkles with virtually no downtime, creating a youthful, relaxed appearance. Whenever you laugh, frown, concentrate or squint your facial muscles contract and your skin creases. As you get older your skin loses its elasticity due to numerous factors and those creases deepen. Frown lines between your eyes can make you look angry or worried even when you’re not.

By temporarily relaxing the muscles you use to frown, wrinkle relaxing injections can smooth out those lines, restoring a more youthful, less stressed expression to your face. You may even lose the urge to frown.

The most commonly treated areas include:

  • the vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • horizontal forehead lines
  • crow’s feet

Wrinkle relaxing injections can also be used to create an eyebrow lift, to stop the corners of the mouth from pulling down, to reduce gummy smiles by lowering the lip and to reduce neck bands. They reduce muscle bulk to refine and slim jaw lines, the cobbled appearance of the chin and horizontal lines above the chin can also be smoothed.

More and more research is being done that shows that keeping wrinkles away is possible and in some cases they can be completely eliminated. Ideally this should be managed at the earliest sign of them appearing. By being proactive and managing your skin properly, it will look and feel healthier as we go through the later years of our lives.

You will be provided with a detailed consent form which you will be asked to read and sign before treatment. You can ask our Doctors any other questions you may have regarding treatment.

The Doctor will deliver a small amount of botulinum toxin to the targeted muscle using an ultra-fine needle. Topical anaesthetic cream is not usually required prior to injections as there is very little discomfort. The injections are pain free with the use of a skin cooling device called Coolsense. This helps numb the area before injection resulting in a very comfortable experience.

Wrinkle relaxing injections are proven to be safe and effective. Potential side effects may include occasional bruising at the injection sites, mild swelling lasting up to 48 hours and in rare cases, temporary eyelid drooping. Botulinum Toxin is not used in areas of infection, if you are allergic to botox or are pregnant. Some conditions may increase the chance of infection, so the Doctor will go through a thorough medical history before your treatment.

The results of a treatment begin to appear from 4-14 days. Generally, after 3-4 months, the effects will begin to fade and facial features will gradually return to their former state. Repeated treatments progressively weaken the targeted muscles and can lead to more prolonged duration and less frequent treatments. Maintenance treatments are necessary to keep the effect for long periods of time.

Clients should avoid alcoholic beverages and anti-inflammatory medications before treatment. For the best results, schedule an appointment at least 2 weeks prior to any special events.
